# How Do You Spell ANGLE?

Pronunciation: [ˈaŋɡə͡l] (IPA)

The spelling of the word "angle" can be a bit tricky. It is pronounced as /ˈæŋɡl/ in IPA phonetic transcription. The "a" in "angle" is pronounced as the short "a" sound, while the "ng" sound is pronounced by touching the back of the tongue to the soft palate near the throat. The "l" sound at the end is pronounced by touching the tip of the tongue to the roof of the mouth. To remember the correct spelling, it may help to associate the word with the shape of an angle, which has two lines intersecting at a point.

## ANGLE Meaning and Definition

1. An angle is a fundamental geometric concept that refers to the union of two rays or line segments that share a common endpoint, known as the vertex. It is typically measured in degrees or radians and signifies the amount of rotation between the two intersecting lines or segments. Angles are crucial in various mathematical disciplines, such as geometry, trigonometry, and calculus.

Angles can be classified based on their magnitude. A right angle measures exactly 90 degrees or π/2 radians and is formed when two perpendicular lines intersect. An acute angle measures less than 90 degrees, while an obtuse angle measures more than 90 degrees but less than 180 degrees. A straight angle measures exactly 180 degrees, resembling a straight line.

Furthermore, angles can be classified based on their relation to each other. Two angles are said to be complementary if their sum is exactly 90 degrees. On the other hand, two angles are considered supplementary if their sum is exactly 180 degrees. Additionally, vertical angles are formed by a pair of intersecting lines and are congruent, meaning they have equal measures.

Angles serve as a foundation for understanding shapes, spatial relationships, and trigonometric functions. They are instrumental in measuring and constructing geometric figures, solving equations involving trigonometric functions, and determining the properties of various polygons and circles.

2. The meeting point of two lines or planes; the figure formed by the junction of two lines or planes; the space bounded on two sides by lines or planes which meet.
